The woodcutter is used to cut trees in front of it down and automatically replace them with a new sapling. It also drops saw dust.


Rotarycraft Handbook DescriptionEdit

"The woodcutter will cut away at the trunk of a tree, causing the rest of the tree to collapse, possibly replanting the tree if it dropped saplings. If enchanted with infinity, it will always replant the tree."

Tips & TricksEdit

  • It will eject the items into a chest placed below it, or alternatively you can use an item vacuum to pick the leftover items up. Note that majority of the saplings will be picked up by the woodcutter but will not be ejected into the chest below until you plant a different type of sapling in front of it and have it replant it for the first time.
  • Fertilizer next to the planted saplings makes the farming process a lot faster.
  • To enchant the woodcutter, right click on it with the Infinity enchanted book. It also accepts the Efficiency book, up to V, for speed, which vastly improves the cutting rate. It accepts Fortune as well. While it is not known if this affects sapling drop rates or not, drop rates of tree dye from dye trees are increased.
